Good day!

First, I am your absolute fan. The things you do are what Internet was made for. You helped me in my studies on an unimaginable scale.

My question is about the quality of books for borrowing. My field of study is visual art. I have learned to download free books from archive as images and manually create the PDF from them, I'm okay with that. But when it comes to books for borrowing, I have only one Encrypted PDF downloading option. And this is practically useless, regarding the compression used for the pictures (which is crucial for me).

Say, this particular book may have as well never been uploaded, just try to take a look at the pictures:

And this is just one among many, many, practically all of them.

Maybe letting people choose the level of compression of the borrowed books could be the solution? You know better. But this is really upsetting - to be able to find a particular book at last just to witness its mutilation beyond repair.
